8 Hearty Vegan Soups to Soothe Your Soul

We’ve been relatively spoiled this week in Denver, with temperatures hovering around 40 degrees. Meanwhile, the East Coast has morphed into an apocalyptic frozen tundra, so I imagine those of you across the country might be craving some hot meals to warm your insides and please your tummy. Truly, I love making soup. I love the prepContinue reading “8 Hearty Vegan Soups to Soothe Your Soul”

Creamy, Cheesy, Pasta Sauce: The Basics

When I first went vegan, I thought I was saying goodbye to my beloved creamy pastas (Mac ‘n Cheese, Fettuccine Alfredo, Penne a la Vodka Sauce, I’d list more but I’m already getting hungry…).

Chocolate Chip Pillow Pancakes

Nutrition question: If I drink a green smoothie, does it erase the calories from the chocolate chip pancakes I’m simultaneously eating? For the Vitamin C Hurricane Smoothie, blend pineapple, spinach, green grapes, orange juice, and (optional) a teaspoon of maca powder! The pancake recipe comes to us from The Post Punk Kitchen: 1 1/2 cups allContinue reading “Chocolate Chip Pillow Pancakes”
